Someone gave me the prompt “Dinosaurs evolved into birds.”

D > B; H > ?

They are smaller, now. Do you think
they are thankful? I hear them chirp
and imagine their ancestors
bulky and taking
up room to roam in this world.
Forever fossilized
in time, and space, and galactic opportunity,
they might wonder when we
will leap–
the gradual shift
into flight.
